Cómo se transforma el plástico en ropa

How is plastic transformed into clothing?

All our garments are created with a sustainable textile. This is composed of a classic mixture of recovered cotton and polyester from post-consumer recycling of PET bottles, this means that the discarded clothing cuts that are textile waste are the raw material. With this we not only use raw-virgin material, but we also save water, energy and designs that end up in landfills.

1. Recovered cotton

To achieve this process, what is done is that the clothing cuts from different companies are collected, these are divided by colors and go through some machines where they are crushed and processed until they are transformed into the cotton specks that we all already know. but already with the colors that were separated.

After this process, the cotton is spun, that is, it is twisted to create a thin thread. This is the one used to weave cloth.

2. PET bottles

In this process what is done is that the plastic bottles are collected, the labels are removed and they are disinfected, later they go through a machine that crushes them and transforms them into "flakes" or "flakes" after After this process, they go through a polymerization process and become pet chips or pellets.

These pellets are the raw material for everything that is made with plastic, be it bottles or textiles, but in our case it is transformed into Polyester, which is generated when the pellets are put into a machine that melts them and where it comes out as a showers.

3. Textile

Already the last step is to weave these threads and create different textiles, either knitted for bags or for t-shirts and flat knitted.

Our threads have the following certificates:

1. STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX® is the world's leading eco-label for textile products. These products have been evaluated and certified by internationally recognized institutes. In addition, with this certification, the consumer is assured that the textile products have been analyzed by controlling substances that are harmful to health.

2. GRS (Global recycled standard) is designed to meet the needs of companies seeking to verify the recycled content of their products (both finished and intermediate), and to verify responsible social, environmental and chemical practices in their production. The objectives of the GRS are to define requirements to ensure accurate content declarations and good working conditions, and that harmful environmental and chemical impact have been minimised.

All this allows us to create multiple options and designs, from ecological t-shirts to dresses with recycled material, allowing us to unite fashion and sustainability in one place.
